Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Hundreds of Indonesians staged a rally in front of the Malaysian Embassy here on Thursday, urging the Malaysian government to investigate local police who shot and killed three Indonesian workers in Malaysia in March.

The demonstrators` coordinator, Rudi Prayitno, outlined the demands before the demonstrators peacefully dispersed.

Dozens of police guarded the demonstrators, who continued condemning the killing of the three workers.

Previously, Malaysian officials said the three migrant workers, identified as Herman, Abdul Kadir Jaelani and Mad Noor, were shot dead after Malaysian police caught them stealing and attempting to attack police officers with machetes.

Further, the victims` family members in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) province, asked why the men were shot.

Herman worked as a construction labourer at Mega Five Dev SSDN BGH, Seremban and Abdul Kadir Jaelani worked at Ashami Enterprise, KG Baru, BT3 Mambau, Lorong Rajawali Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.

Meanwhile, Mad Noor worked as labourer at oil palm plantations, also located at Lot 4302 KG Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.
